1. When you use \vfill at the begin of a makeup environment you don’t
need \mbox and a ConTeXt user would use \dontleavehmode instead of \mbox.

2. To create a language dependant header for the TOC etc. you can use

\placelist[part,chapter]

3. Be careful when you use _ in command names, e.g. \TOC_Title because
it your case you created the command \TOC followed by the string “_Title”.

4. Better use \crlf to force a line break for the <br/> tag because \\
can produce different results depending in the environment.

5. Use \define[2]\... or \unexpanded\def\... to create your \href command.

6. ConTeXt already has a \url command.

7. Your \url command has two font changes (\tt and \hw) and one should
be removed.
